Lunatic makes batch quantification of protein, DNA and RNA a no-brainer. All you need is 2 μL and 5 minutes to measure up to 96 samples. Run them straight-up, even at high concentrations, without ever diluting. Lunatic gets biologics and genomics UV/Vis quantification on the money every time

No B.S. workflow Skip the sample prep, cleaning and worrying about cross-contamination or evaporation — your samples will sit tight for up to 2 hours. Our proprietary Lunatic Chip consumable has 16 individual microfluidic circuits so you can run up to 16 samples at a time. Or knock out up to 96 on a Lunatic Plate. So just load and get kickass results.

Max out your biologic Lunatic is the only system out there that can measure biologics at high-throughput and high concentration. It’s got dynamic range that covers from 0.02 mg/mL to 200 mg/mL (mAb), so run any protein without ever having to dilute again. Stop the madness of running just one protein at a time — and cleaning up afterwards.

Dig up your genomic’s dirt DNA and RNA samples can be freaking messy. Lunatic analysis software lets you see annoying impurities that classic A260 measurements alone mistake as your DNA or RNA. Find out exactly how much RNA, turbidity, beads and other influencers are screwing up your samples. Ditch the time-sucking, dye-based prep and know right away if your samples are good to go.

Get with the program GLP labs don’t sweat it. Lunatic’s software hooks labs up with 21 CFR Part 11 compliant features. We’re talking password protection, electronic signatures, full audit trail – the whole package. Lunatic also talks to robots, so you can plug it right in to your current automation workflow.
